i'm a bad grown up

when we were in so cal last week, my nephew got a wild hair up his ass and we went on a mission to find a trampoline.

we wanted to jump and play and have fun.

but tramps are expensive.

anyway... we drove around to a few stores and finally got a suggestion to a store that would carry them. so we called. they put us on hold for literally 10 minutes. during the hold time, we joked that trampolines should come with candy.

or bubbles.

or at least something fun. i mean how fun would it be to jump on a trampoline if skittles rained down on you or bounced around you?! fun, right? right.

so when the lady came on the phone, this was the conversation that ensued:

lady- the trampoline is 14 feet.

nephew- how much is it?

lady- it's $277 dollars

nephew- okay. does it come with candy?

lady- EXCUSE ME?????

nephew- does it come with candy?

lady- it most CERTAINLY does not!!!

nephew- oh, cause that's what i read online.

lady- you shouldn't believe everything you read online. goodbye!

i was cracking up, because the lady on the phone got SO FREAKING MAD.... like he asked if it came with crack or something. lady, it's just candy.

i know i probably shouldn't have encouraged this.. and maybe i shouldn't have laughed.. but it was funny as hell. you can add this to the list of why i shouldn't be allowed around your kids.

Okay, one more reason you should wander a little bit south this summer with Blake. Have you not been to the house since we got the trampoline? It is big and it is fun!!!! Just say the word. I'll make sure Drew is home.

When I was in elementary school one of my friends had a trampoline and we would go over to jump on it after school. One day we poured a huge bag of JellyBelly jelly beans on it jumped around and tried to catch them in the air with our mouths. I think of that as one of the most fun experiences of my life. It really is was as good as you imagine.
